Taking the Great Rift Valley - the geological fault that will eventually tear Africa in two - as his central metaphor, Alex Perry explores the split between a resurgent Africa and a world at odds with its rise. Africa has long been misunderstood - and abused - by outsiders. Perry travelled the continent for most of a decade, meeting with entrepreneurs and warlords, professors and cocaine smugglers, presidents and jihadis, among many others. Opening with a devastating investigation into a largely unreported war crime in Somalia in 2011, he finds Africa at a moment of furious self-assertion. This is a remade continent, defiantly rising from centuries of oppression to become an economic and political titan: where cash is becoming a thing of the past, where astronomers are unlocking the origin of life and where, twenty-five years after Live Aid, Ethiopia´s first yuppies are traders on an electronic food exchange. Yet, as Africa finally wins the substance of its freedom, it must confront the three last false prophets of Islamists, dictators and aid workers, who would keep it in its bonds.

Steve always forgets to buy groceries on the way to the lake house. Every time he and his wife make a pilgrimage to Maine, his first task is to drive into town and pick up essentials.

During a twenty-minute shopping trip, he has become the chief suspect in a triple murder. The case against him is airtight - fingerprints on the weapon, blood on his shoes - so Steve´s lawyer hires Boston PI John Francis Cuddy to crack it.

We Are Unprepared is a novel about the next big storm, the one that changes our relationship to nature and each other...the superstorm that threatens to destroy a marriage, a rural Vermont town, and the Eastern Seaboard when it hits. But the destruction begins months earlier, when fear infects people´s lives and spreads like a plague. Ash and Pia´s move from Brooklyn to the bucolic hills of Vermont was supposed to be a fresh start - a picturesque farmhouse, a mindful lifestyle, maybe even children. But just three months in, news breaks of a devastating superstorm expected in the coming months. Fear of the impending disaster divides their tight-knit rural town and exposes the chasms in Ash and Pia´s marriage. Ash seeks common ground with those who believe in working together for the common good. Pia teams up with ´´preppers´´ who want to go off the grid and war with the rest of the locals over whom to trust and how to protect themselves. Where Isole had once been a town of old farm families, yuppie transplants, and beloved rednecks, they divide into paranoid preppers, religious fanatics, and government tools. We Are Unprepared is an emotional journey, a terrifying glimpse into the human, environmental, and cultural costs of our changing earth. But hope awaits on the other side. 1. Language: English.
